Widow's Mite Jewelry
Widow's mite jewelry from Jerusalem
Who can forget the example of the widow who gave the two mites? It is one of the most striking accounts of faith in all of the Scripture. This familiar story from the Gospels of Mark and Luke, tells us that she gave more in her poverty than the rich men who came before her.
Her simplicity and faith are memorialized in Scripture. She is contrasted with the rich men who cast great sums into the treasury. We are left wondering what happened to her since the Scripture does not tell us. However, since Jesus held her up as an example of faith in God, we can be confident that He took care of her. We can be confident that God took care of her, since she was an amazing example of righteousness. Centuries before she lived David said “I have not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.”
From her we learn that God values consecration to Him instead of large gifts. The Creator of Heaven and Earth does not need our lavish offerings but rather He wants our heart. Just as the widow wanted to dedicate everything she had to God, so should we be willing to dedicate our all to Him. We too can be confident that He will care for us.
